12mm Charmeuse / Silk Crepe Satin

Now available in about thirty NEW colors! Why?

Lightweight crepe back silk Satin, or Charmeuse, is simply a slightly lighter weight version of our 19.5 momme charmeuse fabrics. Being the 'Rolls Royce' of silks, it has stunning sheen on one side (the shiniest of all silks!) And a slightly textured back. The drape is spectacular and it feels luxurious as it runs across your hand.

ALSO: Colored swatches vary from monitor to monitor and may not exactly match current fabric. There may be slight variations in fabrics from dyelot to dyelot. This is normal. Samples are available. These fabrics are dyed with Acid Dyes, and should be washed in cold water or dry cleaned. Dyed fabrics can bleed! Pre-washing or treating the fabric with something like our Dharma Dye Fixative is a good idea if you want to ensure that there is no dye bleed.

The lame naturalist
At the exact point where the American mink had been set before, they were playing for the second consecutive day the merry otters. As you can see, for obvious reasons, we have wanted to omit the exact location, even the approximate location, of the otter pair.

Discharging: Several folks have been asking if the new colors discharge. Since they are new, we have not tested them yet, but we will be, with Discharge Paste and with DeColourant. But what we can not say on the subject, which any discharge artist should know, is that all colors are going to vary, from discharging to almost white, to nothing, and some will simply lighten, while others will change color. Your results will also depend on the discharging chemical you use. All of them are safe on silk EXCEPT BLEACH. So when you need to be a certain way, you MUST TEST! Discharging can often be unpredictable. We will publish a list of our results in a few weeks.
